Daily Travel Allowance - Update 1 (Replies)


Dear HR Professionals,

I would like to know what are the daily travel allowance rates that companies set for travel within Asia region, US and Europe. We are a Japanese company and our rate is S$75 per day for Asia, S$90 per day for US and Europe.

Hope to have some insights.

Thank you.




We pay the following:

1) China/Africa

a. Managers and above – reimbursement capped at S$50 per meal

b. Below Managers – S$60 meal allowance per day


2) South East Asia / India/Bangladesh/Pakistan

a. Managers and above – reimbursement capped at S$40 per meal

b. Below Managers – S$50 meal allowance per day


3) Europe, US, Japan, Australia, Middle East

a. Managers and above – reimbursement capped at S$70 per meal

b. Below Managers – S$70 meal allowance per day




We follow IRAS per diem rates.




Our travel allowance is flat rate S$40 for travelling to Asia region.
